So you are fresh starting from an University or College, moving to a new place, perhaps you are an international student, but don’t know what furniture to get? We are here to help you know what you should get.
Moreover, in Albuquerque New Mexico, there is the University of New Mexico & Central New Mexico Community College. There are many apartments and dorms around that area from University, north from Lomas and south to Avenida Cesar Chavez.
There are apartments from I-25 to east on Carlisle. Students are often provided with furniture in UNM dorms or Lobo Village.
CNM offers lobo village. They are very much like apartments but only for students. You can always upgrade or replace some furniture.
Let’s start off with the first on our list.
- Buy a bed frame & mattress.
It is difficult to spend on expensive furniture when you are a college student. So we recommend to get a bed frame and a cheap mattress. Typically you would spend around 100-300$ on a bed frame and 150-500$ on a mattress, depending on the size. For certain get a bed for sale.
If you have the extra money, then just get a more upgraded mattress. After all you are going to sleep in that mattress for a while.
Dorms at UNM and Lobo Village often just have a bed frame, mattress, headboard, chest, chair and a desk. The headboards are not really necessary and are just for decorative purposes. They go together with bed frames.
- Buy a comfortable desk and chair.
In addition to sleeping, the rest of your time will taken in a desk and chair. You will be studying and doing homework for your classes. A gaming chair or tall padded office chair with arm rests are often the recommended choice. These typically can be sat for more than 8 hours without feeling uncomfort.
Get a computer desk if you are going to be placing a desktop. Desktops are home computers with a tv display and a tower. These are more wide and longer in length. There are also corner computer desks and regular corner desks.
On the other hand, writing desks are often for laptops and for your usual handwriting assignments. They are smaller and more compact.
Desks hutches can also allow for more space for books and supplies.
Office supplies are also a must when it comes to school: your usual stapler, blank paper, printer, pencils, pens, and erasers.
- Buy a chest.
The next furniture that is a must is a chest. Chests are often as tall as 4 feet or higher with multiple drawers for your clothes. These are spacious when it comes to storing your clothes in them.
- Optional: Buy a dining room set.
Typically some can be expensive, but luckily other sets can be affordable and cheap. A table and two dining chairs will cost around 250$ or higher. Now if you want more chairs the cost will be more.
- Optional: Buy an entertainment center.
In addition, an entertainment center is great when taking breaks during studying or homework. A television is not necessarily needed but it can improve your intellectual mind in many ways.
TV consoles or TV stands are great for putting your television or gaming systems for small gaming sessions. Or putting a relaxing, humor, or educational videos on your television. Televisions can also be connected through an HDMI port, to project projects or readings on your television. Often these television stands are placed in living rooms or rooms.
In conclusion, if you want to save even more money you should definitely look at kids furniture. Kids furniture is usually in sizes of twin or full. A lot of dorms and apartments have small beds.
They save a lot more space and are great when space is scarce. Bunk beds for kids can also be great when you have a roommate in one room. Bunk beds can come in sizes from twin, full, and queen.
